Ilana Glazer Or Phoebe Waller-Bridge Should Be The Next Bond Girl

by Shelton Bumgarner

I’m a big fan of the James Bond franchise. I always liked the opening scene of Moonraker when the space shuttle is stolen. I really like what they’ve done with Daniel Craig. He’s very modern, very of the moment, and has brought a new level of creative seriousness to what had been a rather campy series.

I’ve written some before about how I think Ilana Glazer would be a perfect Bond girl. She’s funny, smart and audiences would laugh and laugh as a strong, independent woman such as she inevitably fell for James Bond. I saw Solo today and it occurred to me that someone who might fit the part a little bit better is Phoebe Waller-Bridge. She has the same spunk as Glazer, but she’s British and the interplay between she and Craig would be sexy and funny. Both women are hot in an unconventional way that would bring a little bit of spark to the movie.

Shrug. No one listens to me anyway. But when they do, cool stuff happens.
